Pick of the day - sport on tv: FA Trophy final Sky Sports 1, 4pm.

Byline: Phil Agius.

SKY have allowed themselves only five minutes to build up the non-Conference FA Trophy final, so here are a couple of facts they probably won't have time to tell you, writes Phil Agius.

Firstly, neither team name is pronounced as the uninitiated might expect.

Burscough should be pronounced Burs-go, not Burs-coff, while the Staffordshire side's fans revel in writing their team name as they speak it - Tamuff.

Tamworth get the edge when it comes to websites. The Lambs' cyberspace is snazzily-titled Four Bleats to the Baa, while Burscough's site has not been updated for two weeks.

But what officially makes Tamworth the more interesting team is the Snowdome that overlooks their ground.

Burscough have no such indoor real snow facility.
